Asalam o Alykum, welcome to 182nd part of our Discover the Holy Quran project. In this part we will read Surah Al-Muddaththir. Surah Al-Muddaththir is the 74rd Surah of the Holy Quran and is comprised of 56 verses. Let’s begin:
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1- O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)!
2- Arise and deliver thy warning!
3- And thy Lord do thou magnify!
4- And thy garments keep free from stain!
5- And all abomination shun!
6- Nor except, in giving, any increase (for thyself)!
7- But, for thy Lord’s (Cause), be patient and constant!
8- Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded,
9- That will be- that Day – a Day of Distress,-
10- Far from easy for those without Faith.
11- Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!-
12- To whom I granted resourses in abundance,
13- And sons to be by his side!-
14- To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable!
15- Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);-
16- By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory!
17- Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities!
18- For he thought and he plotted;-
19- And woe to him! How he plotted!-
20- Yea, Woe to him; How he plotted!-
21- Then he looked round;
22- Then he frowned and he scowled;
23- Then he turned back and way haughty;
24- Then said he: “This is nothing but magic, derived from of old;”
25- “This is nothing but the word of a mortal!”
26- Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire!
27- And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is?
28- Naught doth it permit to endure, and naught doth it leave alone!-
29- Darkening and changing the color of man!
30- Over it are Nineteen.
31- And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubt may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, “What symbol doth Allah intend by this?” Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind.
32- Nay, verily: By the Moon,
33- And by the Night as it retreateth,
34- And by the Dawn as it shineth forth,-
35- This is but one of the mighty (portents),
36- A warning to mankind,-
37- To any of you that chooses to press forward, or to follow behind;-
38- Every soul will be (held) in pledge for its deeds.
39- Except the Companions of the Right Hand.
40- (They will be) in Gardens (of Delight): they will question each other,
41- And (ask) of the Sinners:
42- “What led you into Hell Fire?”
43- They will say: “We were not of those who prayed;
44- “Nor were we of those who fed the indigent;
45- “But we used to talk vanities with vain talkers;
46- “And we used to deny the Day of Judgment,”
47- “Until there came to us (the Hour) that is certain.”
48- Then will no intercession of (any) intercessors profit them.
49- Then what is the matter with them that they turn away from admonition?-
50- As if they were affrighted asses,
51- Fleeing from a lion!
52- Forsooth, each one of them wants to be given scrolls (of revelation) spread out!
53- By no means! But they fear not the Hereafter,
54- Nay, this surely is an admonition:
55- Let any who will, keep it in remembrance!
56- But none will keep it i remembrance except as Allah wills: He is the Lord of the Righteousness, and the Lord of Forgiveness.
O my Lord! Forgive me, my parents, all who have Faith, and (all) believing men and believing women,- (Ameen)
